Windows 7: Touchscreen Gaming Issues

Touchscreen Gaming Issues

Hi all. I am trying to get some games running on my Dell Inspiron Duo. I have managed to get Warcraft 3 running very well.

The main problem I am encountering though, is that when I play, I keep thinking that it would be awesome with the touchscreen. I can do all the main functions that a mouse can, ie a left and a right click. Windows 7 is improving with multi-touch (right clicking is a pleasure as i tap a second finger on the screen like I'm clicking a right button). But there seems to be no built in method for a middle click, and more specifically and middle button click and drag.

Does anyone know of a method of emulating the middle click and drag by using different multi-touch gestures. Say dragging with 2 fingers across the screen would be a middle click and drag. This would be a really useful trick as it would allow me to pan the map in warcraft 3, as well as other RTS games, and have many more uses as its quite a standard tool. Thanks in advance if there is an answer!

Ps. I do have a post on this already in the forums, but it wasn't directed at gaming like this. If an admin doesnt like a second post on the same subject could they delete the previous post from the hardware and devices tread as it has had zero replies and 65 views.

Nope, sorry man. There is no way to middle-click with the touchscreen... The game has to be optimized for touchscreens better... So its a no go. What does the middle-button do (ingame)?

Well it is a map pan. Only thing stopping me from playing fully on the touch screen.

So is there no mouse emulation software out there that could recognise multitouch input? If not i wish i had concentrated on how to program more, major gap in the market (ok not major but still)
